Opinión de: Sanjeev B , febrero 2013

Tuvimos una gran experiencia con Danny. Mi esposa, mi hija y yo éramos los únicos sólo en el tour, así que nos dieron toda su atención. Se acercó al ritmo que queríamos - rápido pero no apresurado - y nos mostró partes de Sheung Wan, en particular, que no hubiéramos conocido a explorar. Recomiendo encarecidamente

Opinión de: Deirdre P , febrero 2013
